It's Leap Year Day this year and The Oscars have just wrapped up and declared new winners and best pictures (congratulations Leonardo DiCaprio on The Revenant and Sam Smith on "Writing's On The Wall" for Spectre)... But the year is still full of surprises and blockbusters that have yet to premiere and show themselves on the stage floor, and among them is the DC Films epic that is Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice!

During this week's "After The Oscars" episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, a brand new clip from BvS premiered, showing off Superman giving a hard warning to an Armored Batman, who isn't intimidated by the Last Son of Krypton's power at all.

Pokemon turns 20 years today! Happy Pokemon Day!

The video game world celebrates today, as Pokemon - the ingenious creation of one Satoshi Tajiri and owned by The Pokemon Company, turns 20 years today - honoring a legacy that has spanned through several games where Pokemon Trainers capture different types of creatures to train and do battle against one another in a worldwide arena that holds infinite possibilities and pure combat fantasy!

Since its inception in February 27, 1996 with a game called Pocket Monsters Red and Green for the original Nintendo Game Boy, what would be known as "Pokemon" see the first game revised and ported to the US in 1998 as "Pokemon Red and Blue", before getting a rereleased enchanced version with "Pokemon Yellow". That would then start a chain reaction that saw the fanbase grow and the game evolve into a lucrative media franchise, extending itself beyond games and expanding into trading card games, toys, anime series, movies, and much much more.

The most recognizable Pokemon and ultimately the franchise's mascot would be Pikachu - the yellow tiny creature that has electric powers. The character has appeared alongside its master and trainer Ash Ketchum since the original Pokemon animated series that started in 1997. Their adventures and partnership are legendary and awe inspiring, as is that catchy intro song.

Pokemon Original Intro

With two new installments coming out later this year in Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon for the Nintendo 3DS, Pokemon's legacy is indeed intact and getting more followers and fans each day. Happy 20th Anniversary Pokemon... I Choose You!

Throwback Thursday: 30 Years of Batman: The Dark Knight Returns...

About 30 years have passed since one of the most important and genuine works in comic book history, The Dark Knight Returns, burst into the picture and brought back something that was sorely lacking for a time... A Batman who was, for all intents and purposes, THE DARK KNIGHT. Putting together a story of an older Bruce Wayne who was well past his prime yet still burning with the desire to make a difference and stand against crime and injustice, Frank Miller set the bar in depicting a Batman that not only embraced his mission again, but also returned to his dark roots and didn't hesitate to instill fear and intimidation to those who preyed on the innocent.

Published as a four issue miniseries beginning in February 1986, The Dark Knight Returns forever changed the landscape of comics as we knew it then and how we know it now. It not only defined Batman for a generation and inspired his portrayal in several mediums and films like Tim Burton's Batman films and Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy, but it also serves as the DIRECT INSPIRATION behind the upcoming DC Films' epic "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", where Ben Affleck plays a more hardenered, older, and experienced Batman than anything depicted in film.

In fact, the regular Batsuit and Batarmor were inspired by The Dark Knight Returns, and taking on Supes is directly lifted from the last chapter of that graphic novel saga, "The Dark Knight Falls".

With a new sequel series currently running in Dark Knight III: The Master Race, attention and focus is clearly directed at this classic and its influence on BvS. We'll just have to wait and see what happens on March 25th between the Last Son of Krypton and Dark Knight on film, but for now we honor 30 years of TDKR... Happy Anniversary, The Dark Knight Returns!
